Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
CBR TV spoke with writer Kyle Higgins about his work on “Deathstroke” and “Nightwing,” two of the titles launched as part of DC Comics New 52 initiative.
After explaining his Twitter handle (@KyleDHiggins) and some ebay comic speculating, Higgins delved into the background of the DCU’s biggest and baddest mercenary Deathstroke, discussing the over-the-top violence of the series and character, his original pitch for a more real world-grounded title and a promise that the merc’s actions will result in consequences.
Higgins then goes into the motivations of the titular character of his other series, Nightwing, and what it is that makes Dick Grayson a different man than Bruce Wayne despite their similar origins, how Dick managed to don the cowl of Batman without it ruining his upbeat outlook on life, the truth behind Batgirl referring to Dick as Richard, his “penchant for redheads” and the role of Gotham in the lives of its inhabitants.
